Bourgogne "Les Deux Terres"

The Cuvée Bourgogne "les Deux Terres" comes from a blend of both Beaujolais and Bourgogne Côte d'Or. This is why I decided to give it the name of "les Deux Terres" (the two lands).

Advice

Tasting notes
It has an attractive bouquet of brambly red fruit, raspberry preserve and crushed strawberry with hint of pepper. The medium-bodied palate offers a sweet, cassis-tinged entry and tobacco and stewed berries. Smooth in texture with round tannin, it feels very sweet on the finish.
